Andrés Aragoneses is a physicist doing research in photonics, chaos and complex systems. Aragoneses does experiments inducing chaos in the output intensity of lasers to characterize its behavior and relate it to other complex systems, such as neurons. He has research experience in quantum key distribution and is also interested in physics education research.

He uses science fiction in his lectures to analyze the realism of the physics in the movies. Aragoneses engages his students in science-communication activities.

Aragoneses previously worked at Carleton College, Duke University, Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Spain), and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain).
